Family Promise® of Greater Helena is a nonprofit organization that assists families with children through tough times when they are without housing. Their mission is to help homeless and low-income families achieve sustainable independence through a tried and true model of an "Interfaith Hospitality Network." The nationwide program has already served 250,000 family members and has an impressive success rate of 80% of the assisted families being able to secure independent housing. Host churches rotate each week in hosting the families in the program. Families can spend their days at the Day Center where there is a full-time staff person who counsels and helps the adults who are looking for work and housing. It also has space for the children to play and do their homework. Life Covenant gives financial support to Family Promise, as well as serving as a host church throughout the year.
Florence Crittenton’s Residential Program and Community Services are aimed at gathering around pregnant and parenting young families and providing them with the tools needed to be successful. At the heart of all of Florence Crittenton’s programs is the belief that by helping a young parent we are helping their child and enabling a young family to live a positive, healthy, and successful life. They believe that strong families are the roots of a strong community and that there is no greater investment than in early childhood development. www.florencecrittenton.org 901 N.
